DDTank Brasil Celebrates Mass Adoption with Update

May 20, 2016

Brazil-centric game DDTank Brasil is thanking players who have downloaded it droves with a pretty massive update.

Per the presser, the update brings:

— Enchantment Success Rate & Enchantment Level Limit Boost!
Enchanting weapons and equipment helps increase their attack and stats, but not every attempt is successful. DDTank Brasil is changing the rate for low level items, and introducing Enchanting Stones. Players can also use Grace Charms to prevent any level loss.

— Jewelry System
Jewelry bought in the Shop, except rare jewelry, will now be permanent — and players can boost jewelry stats by absorbing other jewelry of the same quality.

— World Boss System
The Dark Dragon is stronger than ever! There will be just one World Boss, and it will come back to life a minute after being defeated – with more HP and overall power. Players can compete to be one of the top warriors to fight in the boss battle for extra rewards! DDTank Brasil will also be adding Guild Bosses in the near future.

— Cross-Server Duels
Cross-server Duels will be a weekly event. Players are divided into 25 leagues, and will face off against players around the same level and Battle Rating. Players will also get Duel Tokens to purchase items. Player progress will be recorded with stars. Win to gain stars and advance, or lose to see your stars taken away.

— Magic Marmite System
After smashing Magic Marmites, players earn points and can also win rare prizes such as Weapons, Pet Shards, Pet Fodder, Rings, Essence, and all kinds of stones!

The app remains free with in-app purchases.

Mystic Castle now released on Google Play

Locojoy has now released an Android version of its text-based RPG title Mystic Castle to Google Play, available from May 19th for free. Originally released with iOS compatibility only back in March this year, the game is now available for one week only on the App Store for free (20th – 27th May).

Taking on the role of alchemist, you will find yourself in a creepy dungeon that you must navigate, fighting strange creatures and ensuring you have the resources to destroy entire strongholds. The main aim of the game is to build your own underground city whilst encountering a plethora of different ‘events’ throughout, which will range from monetary negotiations to skill progression.

Adding expansion packs through IAP opens up another element to the already huge world – with 500 areas set across 10 maps to begin with – ensuring you’ll always have something new to get stuck into.

If you’re an iOS user, you can benefit from the latest update which includes two new areas: the Eternal Arena and the Dark Rift. The former circles around a trial tower experience, where you’ll gain more reward the higher you climb. The Dark Rift, however, is a maze area, whereby you must battle a dizzying amount of enemies attacking from all corners.

Now rated at 4.5+ on the App Store, if this looks like your cup of tea, we recommend a gander!

Strava Adds ‘Live Segments’ to Android Feature Set

May 18, 2016

Cross-platform socially minded fitness utility Strava is getting an update which brings a vaunted new feature.

Called Live Segments, the new feature allows users to make use of real-time audio and visual helpers while monitoring personal progress.

It’s all part of a system designed to be a better solution for runners and cyclists.

An in-depth description of the Live Segments is posted here.

Product Manager Crosby Freeman talks about the evolution of the visual aspect. “Originally we had this idea of a circular dial that would update your progress in a ‘clock’ style,” he says. “We evolved from the dial to the present Live Segment view, which is sort of modeled off of those old 2D race car video games. This view allows us to expand and show more goals in the future.”
